Result from BUCS meeting
Doncaster AC athlete Chloe Bradley has been competing for the Loughborough university team over the winter in BUCS cross counties and recently for the 1500m. Chloe was selected to represent the Loughborough team for the 1500m at the British Universities Colleges Sport championships held last weekend at the EIS. The heats were on Saturday and Chloe ran a good strong race finishing in third place and recorded a new personal best time of 4minutes 50.2 seconds and qualified for the final. Sunday’s final Chloe ran the 1500m final and finished in a creditable 6th place and was rewarded with another personal best time of 4mins 49.28s, recording another Doncaster ac club record for her efforts.
Over the last few months Chloe has been training and competing for the Loughborough team and her training and hard work has improved her best time for the 1500m by over 30 seconds.

Congratulations to Simon Hunter who finished the Stamford 30k in 405th place with a time of 2:46:09. This is a lovely race, not much of it is flat.
Oulton Park Half Marathon – 23/02/14
Congratulations to Joanna Howe who braved the gale force wind to tackle this half marathon, she finished in 2:01:44 in 309th place. 458 athletes completed the race. Jo was slightly disappointed not to get under 2 hours but the conditions were against her.
Doncaster Parkrun – 22/02/14
6 DAC athletes competed in the Doncaster Parkrun, I am delighted to see that George Phillips won the race, I suspect he is the youngest runner to win at Doncaster? Between the six DAC athletes that competed on the 22nd they have run the Doncaster Parkrun 78 times! The course is drying out now so it is becoming more runnable, I hope this trend continues…
Roy has sent through the results from last nights time trials, well done to everyone who competed and our thanks to Roy.
